So I kind of messed up at Christmas and have 2kg (ha ha!) of currants left from making mincemeat, christmas cake, Christmas pudding. I really want to get them used up, and am just making endless currant biscuits/cookies and fruit loaf. Any ideas- sweet, savoury all welcomed!

Are you making hot cross buns ?

Rock cakes are good, kids love them and so simple to make.

Excuse the spelling/writing, I wrote this when I was about 13!

Chelsea Buns ? Currant scones ?

Pan au raisins but using currants ?

Currant shortbread ?

Welsh cakes?

They can be made using just currants but you can also add other ingredients/flavours,delicious.smile

Forgot to add they are extra nice if you soak the currants for 24 hours,amaretto is gorgeous for this.

Soak them in rum and eat then with ice cream or add them to pancakes (they are particularly nice in banana pancakes).

Sprinkle them in your porridge every day,

Christmas pudding and mincemeat keep very well - I'd make this Christmas's now (or at least before they go out of date)
